Interactive Spam

Somebody might want to do something about the interactives; somebody's taken to spamming them.

Th spammer has started a "story line" in the interactive site. It is well past time to flush the filth.

Surprised it took this long to happen. I'll remove the current spam pages, but if any more sneak in you can PM the links to me or post them here.

I don't know if anything's been done already, but it looks like they're doing it again.

Removed the ones I saw. I really need to develop some real admin tools for the site, and accounts. Luckily it seems like all the attacks are manual, which is both good and bad as it means it's not a huge flood of automated spam, but it also means that there's no simply way to block it. It might be worth going back to having to approve all new stories, but that's only as top gap.

There are a couple things I can do to tighten things up, but I'll have to see what I can do. I hate to say it, but I'm not exactly great at PHP.

Yeah...I'm as tolerant as the next fellow, but he's clearly just screwing around. He's not a 'bot' or anything like that...rather he's just sort of a dick. He's spamming the Interactive's with dumb shit, not to extend a story but just to eat a story option with a useless shit-post. It's clearly intentional and not something he's about to stop doing on his own.

Yes, but Theo's the boss lion around here- can't he just banish him from the kingdom?

I would like it if it was that easy. Would be easy enough on the forum but the interactive story stuff is mostly something I hacked together over a weekend. As it doesn't need accounts to post it doesn't have a way to really ban someone... yet. I'm working on seeing how I can add it.
